Services

We provide our services with a special concentration on a fear- and force-free environment. We want all pets to leave us happy, healthy, and tired from the exercise. To learn more about how we can help you and your pets, contact us today.

Dog Training:

We offer force-free, positive reinforcement dog training for all breeds and ages. So whether you are looking for assistance with pulling on the leash, house training, jumping on visitors, or destructive chewing our certified dog trainers can help. 

We offer classes as well as private in-home dog training. Please call for pricing and packages.

Ask about our Fear Free collaborative care training for dogs and cats. This training is perfect for pets who are fearful at the vet or groomer. We work to build a positive emotional response to these events.

Dog Walking/Potty Breaks

Katie Casell walking dogsTake back your lunch break! During our dog walks we give your dog not only the opportunity to relieve himself/herself but also the opportunity to get valuable exercise or just stop and smell the “roses”. A tired dog is a good dog and just like exercise relieves stress in people it also relieves stress in dogs. So whether you work long hours or are just busy with the everyday chores of life, Dances with Dogs will give your dog(s) the walk time they need.

We also offer potty breaks which are perfect for senior dogs and puppies.

Pet Sitting visits:

Most pets do best when left in their own environment with all the familiar smells of you, their favorite sleeping spots and their favorite foods and treats. We will visit your pet(s) as many times per day as you would like. We offer untimed visits to make sure your pets get all the love and care they need. We will try to keep your pet(s) as close to their regular routine as we possibly can. We offer the following during our scheduled pet sitting visits:

  • Fresh food and water
  • Treats as instructed
  • Potty break or walk
  • Play
  • Litter box scooping
  • Accident clean up
  • Medication is given
  • Newspaper, mail and package retrieval
  • Trash put out
  • Lights and blinds rotated
  • Indoor plants watered
  • Pet beds fluffed and straightened
  • Lots of love for your pets!!!

Overnight Pet Sitting (in your home):

If your pet(s) needs more than the occasional visit, or your pet(s) just doesn’t like to sleep alone, Dances with Dogs can help by offering our overnight stays. You get everything offered with our pet sitting visits plus the peace of mind knowing there is someone there with your pets and home at night.

Your pet sitter will have other pets to care for during the day which is why we offer you a minimum service to ensure your pets get the best quality care. There may be times when your sitter can spend even more time with your pet than is stated.

Overnight pet sitting is offered on a limited basis therefore, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit when making your reservation. Please understand that once our overnight pet sitters are booked we must turn down any further requests.

Overnight pet sitting includes arrival 8:00 pm, standard morning pet care and departure at 6:00 am. Any midday visits will be charged at our regular pet sitting rates. There may be an additional charge for households with more than five pets.
